LG Electronics (LG) has announced that it has become the world’s first automotive component supplier to adhere to international testing standards for functional safety and cybersecurity management for vehicles. Each year, the company updates its required certifications for its hardware and software solutions for EV components through the TÜV Rheinland testing organization.

To date, LG has consistently ensured its solutions comply with all relevant regulations while also taking part in key certification programs. Recently, Kim Min-kyu – one of LG’s research engineers – obtained the Automotive Functional Safety Expert qualification, only the second individual to do so since the qualification program was established in 2011.

LG’s vehicle components also comply with the Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) – the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe’s (UNECE) regulation No. 155 (UN R155).

“With the rising importance of vehicle security and safety regulations in the global auto industry, acquiring certification for our auto components and technologies is key to maintaining competitiveness,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS). “LG will continue to comply with the latest standards and grow its capabilities in safety and security to provide our customers with even more reliable solutions.”

“We congratulate LG on producing Asia’s first Functional Safety Expert, an achievement that reflects the company’s outstanding, across-the-board performance in acquiring top industry certifications and qualifications,” added Frank Juettner, CEO and director, TÜV Rheinland Korea. “Obtaining the latest certifications, including ISO/SAE 21434, demonstrates LG’s commitment to providing its customers and partners with the highest level of product, system safety and security.”
